A Prayer fof Elected Leaders

U S Senate Archives

I’ve had multiple requests for the prayer from last Sunday, which was for elected officials at all levels of government.

O, God, we pray today for those who lead us in our community, in our nation, and in our world.  Give to each one renewed energy for their lives and for their tasks of leadership.  On this day may they find their bodies rested and their spirits restored.  Give to each a new understanding of their position.   May they see new possibilities for policy making and new possibilities of good for the people they serve.  Reveal to all elected officials a common purpose that benefits all.

We pray that Christ’s heart would be expressed in both the way they do their jobs and in the outcome of their efforts. Banish pride from each life and remove vanity from all hearts so that their only desire is to serve the citizens they represent. Lead them even to sacrifice if necessary in order that they might perform their duties without regard for themselves or reelection. Banish personal ambition from each life and remove vanity from all hearts so that their only desire is to serve the citizens they represent.

And make us citizens that are worthy of our Constitution, worthy of our Bill of Rights, worthy of our liberty, and worthy of great leaders.   For we know that if you grant our petitons, then we shall have the nation we desire.

In the name of Christ, our Lord, Amen.
